Sainte Therese Group's story

The Sainte Thérèse solidarity group began on the same day as the inauguration of the Banc Villageois of Sainte Anne, which hosts it. It is made up of 10 women who are from different neighborhoods but who come together each month for the operation of the Banc Villageois. Their businesses are very diverse: they raise livestock, fatten pigs, run small businesses, etc. Madame Louise Coumba D. (to the right of the photo) is the leader of the group. She is 36 years old. She is married and the mother of three children, who are in her care. She also cares for her two little sisters and a boy who is entrusted to her by her close friends. She has raised pigs for around 5 years. She slaughters the pigs as well. She buys adult pigs and slaughters them to sell the meat by the kilogram. Her customer base is made up of her immediate neighbors. This new loan will allow her to buy 5 piglets, which she will raise, and 4 adult pigs meant for slaughter. Her objective is to support her husband in caring for the family. This includes purchasing food, caring for the health of the children, and participating in paying for their education.
